So what is Karan Johar planning after Kabhi Alvida Naa Kehna? He's planning to start two films at a go. The first project with Soham [Kaal] in the director's seat is known to all by now. "So far, we have finalized Sanjay Dutt, John Abraham, Kareena Kapoor and Ritesh Deshmukh for the project in question. We'll be adding two more heroes to the cast," Karan informs me.
The film isn't titled yet, but Karan is keen to call it Race. "The hitch is, the title is with Ramesh Sippy," Karan says. This film is expected to roll in November this year.
The second project, Karan divulges, will also start in November and will be directed by Tarun Mansukhani, who has been his apprentice since Kuch Kuch Hota Hai. "We've okayed the script already. All he needs to do is put the cast in place. Tarun is an extremely bright and hardworking guy," he adds.
Isn't Karan planning to start his own project? "I plan to take a two-week holiday after K.A.N.K. Thereafter, I will begin shooting the new series of Koffee With Karan from October onwards. But there wouldn't be a long gap between K.A.N.K. and my next film, I promise," he smiles.
